I chair the council’s Neighbourhood Services Scrutiny Board (NSSB), which scrutinises a wide range of services delivered by the council. Waste and recycling is one of the areas were look at and yesterday I joined a handful of fellow councillors and visited Wolverhampton Council to look at how they collect food waste. I was impressed at the set up and we were also taken to see how the waste ends up at their Anaerobic Digestion plant just over the border in Staffordshire.
At this weeks NSSB we have a briefing item on Food Waste (see http://www.solihull.gov.uk/akssolihull/images/att31703.pdf) . The board has previous recognised supporting Home Composting and the ‘Love Food, Less Waste’ campaign. However, what are your thoughts? Do not be afraid to comment on this website. Alternatively, have a go at the poll – this is the first one I have done (so hope it works).
